OK - I think that's just about it:

To access your new identity, just add a 2 immediately after your login name. The password is unchanged.

We'll leave both identities open for a few days so that you can copy across any info that you need, and make any other changes - maybe changing Occupation / Location on the old identity to indicate that you've moved (and disabling PMs at some point).

I suggest checking both the old and new profiles in case anything was damaged by the move.

Otherwise very happy with the new look [Smile]

I've swapped everything I want to off this account, and changed the things I need to.

My new number is working perfectly, so i'm happy now if you want to do whatever you need to do to close this account.

Thank you very much for swapping it all over so seamlessly.

Bye bye #4367, you served me well.

Afraid you can't - they go with the number rather than the name, and there's no simple way of moving them (hence the few days' overlap for sorting out & tidying up).

I have NO IDEA what my password is. It's something easy I knew I would remember. Right.

I did pay electronically however...for the first time in my life. I feel so naked. My identity will doubtlessly be stolen in the next half hour, all my money taken and I shall be poor and pitiful and twenty-year olds won't want to go out with me.

3631 has gone to 66. It's like virtual liposuction. What a gloriously, vulgarly, ostentatiously LOW number. Worth every penny. So much lower than Jen's.

And so close to 666. Very appropriate, I'd say.
